Just wanted to share a lo I did using some yummy Fabscraps from the Flying Unicorn Store.
I had did a lo using this picture before using Fabscraps but I spilled my drink on it and of course ruined most of it..so I pulled off the picture and my Fabscraps papers and started again.
I used 3 layers of pp on it and using my Distrezz it All and Lucky 8 punch, I made the base of my lo. Of course masking, inking and stamping to jazz up the background a bit is a must! I love the chicken wire mask from Crafters Workshop! It's really fun to work with! Here are some close ups of the layout. I was lucky enough to have the chippies on the other lo not get too wet. Thank goodness for flowers because you can always cover up those mistakes!!
I wanted to use the same title as the previous lo also, so I turned up a corner at the bottom and added the title there.
Flying Unicorn store to pick up some Fabscraps of your own and get creative!!

This month at the Flying Unicorn, we are spotlighting Riddersholm Designs. I find Riddersholm to be some of the finest quality papers out there and the new collections are amazing!!
For this LO I used papers from the Flea Market and Huntington Garden Collections..available at the Flying Unicorn Store. I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch designed by CT member Tracey.
Here is the sketch:
Here is what I created:
I used some of the 'cut out's for my title
Come on by the Mojo monday thread in the forum, join us and get creative!

Hey all!! Here I am..as promised to share my OTP projects from the August kit with you!
These were the most fun..creative OTP I've done for myself in a while..don't get me wrong..I LOVE the OTP projects Alda puts together..but this one really pushed me to 'think' a little out of my zone and get more creative!! I loved it!
I totally knew what I wanted to try when I opened up the OTP and found these 4 canvases in there. I had been so inspired by Gabrielle Pollacco's canvas she did that I had to do one..or 4 of my own!! Click HERE to see her beautiful work!!I follwed her video and used her templates to make these. She got inspired to do hers by a book Collage Couture by Julie Nutting. I will definatley have to pick that up!!
I printed the templates off 5x7 to fit the canvas. I used Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden and Bo Bunny Little Miss for the papers. Did lots of modge podge, stamping, and masking..SO fun!! Here are some close ups
So now that they are all done..I'm hanging them up in my scrap room. A huge thanks to Gabi for sharing that tute with us..I am not sure I would of ever tried this if I hadn't seen it. Thanks for stopping by!
So now..let's go get creative!!

Just sharing a few lo's I did using Flying Unicorn's August kit "Remember the Tomorrows". I love this kit, it was so fun to work with!
I created this lo using the Websters papers that came with the kit. I also did if for a challenge Lisa is having in the forums this month. You had to create a lo using a Mother Goose rhyme. I could not find a picture to save my life of course..so I went with the only pic I could think of. I chose the "I sing..I sing" rhyme for this. The journaling is handwritten around the circle. I only used half of the ryhme because we only needed the title in it..and let's face it..I ran out of room.
"I sing..I sing..from morn till night..
I used my MS Blooming Vines punch around the black Websters paper and added a piece of cardstock from the add on kit to it for more support. I cut a cirlce and used Lisa Gregory's tutorial to punch around the edges. Did some stitching as well.
Part of the challenge is you have to have a colored image..so I grabbed my stamp and come Copics and then fussy cut to get a small branch with leaves.
